Original tapered infrared chalcogenide glass fibers have been developped in order to analyse by evanescent wave absorption the IR signatures of biomolecules in the 2 to 12μm range. In using a small contact between the fiber and the analytes, in situ measurements have been perfomed on biofilms, serum, liver and lung cells allowing the detection of metabolic anomalies.
